A wine cellar. While there's no need to totally renovate your space just to appease any future wine enthusiast, recent surveys have shown that wine cellars are a hot commodity in today's market. “Have some space in your basement you rarely use? Consider turning it into a wine cellar with a few wine racks,” says Romero. Note that wine cellars should have limited light, and a minimal variation in temperature.
Walk-in closets. Nothing says “home sweet home” louder than a walk-in closet. If your master suite is particularly large, consider walling off a corner for that awe-inducing walk-in effect.
Storage space. “When it comes to your home, it's nearly impossible to have too much storage space,” says Romero. Have high ceilings? Add extra shelving or cabinetry, or construct a shelving wall in the garage.
Outdoor living. “Everyone loves to imagine themselves lounging outdoors on a summer evening,” says Romero. It can be easy to simulate an outdoor living experience—simply group a couple of chairs and a table in the yard, or make use of that deck or porch by providing ample seating.
